Great staff who were happy to help with pretty much everything, lovely hostel with a brilliant pool area and other facilities. We had a room with a fan and it was hard to sleep - definitely opt for one with AC. In a strange location, but a good stop if visiting other places!

The dreamer is absolutely amazing. The staff is really friendly and everybody remembers your naam. The rooms have enough space, even the 10 bed. The breakfast is expensive but really good and optinial.

Best staff I have ever come across, and amazing breakfast for about $4.50! T.V room upstairs is a good idea but the cable does not work and being on a terrace it is stinking hot and there is always lots of glare from the sun. Seating which also looks nice is not comfortable at all so everybody just watches T.V in the restaurant area downstairs. A solid chilled out hostel but I would not say it is the best hostel in Colombia like awarded.

Dear Traveler, A special thanks to you, taking a moment of your time to share your experience with other travelers is something we highly appreciate, I shared your comment with the staff, they were so happy! For us, having been awarded best hostel in Colombia does not mean being better than other hostels but that we are on the right path and that the daily efforts of all our team has been noticed by travelers, Of course will work to improve ourselves every day. Come back soon! Fulvio

Great hostel. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful with everything. Has everything you could want in a hostel, great restaurant, drink specials, activities, laundry service, pool, breakfast (extra). We then went down the road to Dreamer Palomino and it was amazing as well.

It's a very good hostel. The hospitality of the staff is excellent. They are always avaiable to help. Unfortunately, I stayed only one day. The only thing that should be developed are the bathroom, because we don't have a place to put our clothes or towel near the shower. The other things are excellent. I would recommend this hostel for everyone who decides to visit Santa Marta.

This is an amazing hostel. Great chilled vibe with music, a pool, hammocks. There's not much to see in Santa Marta itself but if you're looking for a good hostel this is it! Staff are super friendly

Only stayed 1 night, but thought this place was really nice. Security was excellent. Location was perfect for getting to Parque Tayrona, but if you wanted to explore Santa Marta itself it seemed a bit out of the way. Staff were really friendly and helpful. I didn't soak in the atmosphere since I was just using this as a base to visit the park, but it had a nice pool and seemed like a good place to both relax and party.

Lovely hostel, but quite a long way out of Santa Marta.

The staff at the Dreamer hostel were very helpful, we would like to give special thanks to Tony who went out of his way to make us feel confortable, including inviting us to participate in a football game with him and his friends once he had finished work, and after his shift taking us to the bus station and helping us due to our lack of Spanish. We cannot praise him enough.
